Mission & Vision
The Lighthouse Foundation of Wake County is committed to being a helping hand to low-income adult neighbors navigating a significant health crisis.
Our vision is for underserved residents to receive the health care they need and the basic living conditions they deserve.
100% of every dollar given to our 501(c) (3) non-profit organization goes directly to assist fellow neighbors with chronic and mental health needs.
Over 1,300 low-income, Wake County residents have been served since 2012.
To date, the LFWC has spent over $150,000 in financial assistance for medical and basic support services.
